Aromatherapy inhalers are a great way to reap the benefits of essential oils without applying them topically. Slowly inhale the specially curated blend into one nostril, hold for five seconds and repeat on the other side.
This blend is based off of the popular blend, “thieves,” and is meant to stimulate the immune system, with essential oils of cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, rosemary, and lemon.
When inhaled, the molecules travel through the nose and into the brain, and are delivered to a variety of receptors. The limbic system is one of these sites, and is commonly referred to as the “emotional brain.” The limbic system is connected to the parts of the brain that control blood pressure, heart rate, memory, stress, hormone balances, and more, so this may explain why the brain has an emotional response to smell.
